[racket] (require readline) seg faults on Maemo5!

  Hi folks!

As already reported i another posting I could compile racket
from source tarball "plt-racket-v4.1.1-7459-ga530109.tar.gz".
(By the way I find the naming of tarball which I downloaded
from GitHub somehow strange (specially the part v4.1.1!!)

Here is my first racket session:
user at Nokia-N900:~$ racket
Welcome to Racket v5.0.0.9.
 > (require readline)
 > Seg fault (internal error) at 0x219290
SIGSEGV SEGV_ACCERR SI_CODE 2 fault on 0x219290

The library "libreadline5" is already installed:

*Nokia-N900:~# dpkg -s libreadline5*
Package: libreadline5
Status: install ok installed
Priority: important
Section: libs
Installed-Size: 320
Maintainer: maemo integration <integration at maemo.org>
Architecture: armel
Source: readline5
Version: 5.2-2maemo2+0m5
Depends: readline-common, libc6 (>= 2.5.0-1), libncurses5 (>= 5.7-1)
Description: GNU readline and history libraries, run-time libraries
  The GNU readline library aids in the consistency of user interface
  across discrete programs that need to provide a command line
  The GNU history library provides a consistent user interface for
  recalling lines of previously typed input.

Any idea how it can be fixed.


PS: As an alternative to "readline" I use
     "*rlwrap*" that works very well.
